Waking Up

[Pureinsight.org] Lately, many things have happened, from the attacks and interference in Flushing, New York to Eutelsat halting NTDTV’s satellite broadcast. My heart moved a lot. I could not help asking myself, “Why did all this happen?”

When you calm down and look at these things from the perspective of Fa, you will know the answer right away. Let’s analyze why I had such question. Master said in Zhuan Falun, “You just feel it is ‘strange.’ This is demonic interference. It manipulates people to disturb you. This is the most simple form of interference which is aimed at stopping you from cultivation” (Lecture 6, “Demonic Interference during Practice”). Master’s words tell me clearly why I had such a question. I think that the bottom line is that I did not truly believe in Dafa. Actually, when you think about it carefully, you will find that these are good things. Master said, “You should know, and I have been saying all along, that when you, as Dafa disciples, look at something, you have to make sure to view it in reverse since the Three Realms are inverted, and you have to conduct yourselves in a positive, correct manner” (“Fa Teaching at the 2008 New York Conference”). These things were not only shown to everyday people, they were also used to test our Fa-rectification Dafa disciples. As I am writing this article, I find that everything I want to write is included in Dafa. The responsibility of Dafa disciples is extremely large. We need to save sentient beings. We need to clarify the truth. Especially now–when the evil beings are in their death throes, we must calm down. We must study Fa more diligently to keep a clear mind. Then we can save more sentient beings.

From another perspective, all these “interferences” also help Dafa disciples identify the sentient beings who can be saved. Master said, “As I said earlier, some beings are unworthy of being saved. You can clarify the facts to every person, but not every person out on the street will be saved, as some of them are no longer worthy. At critical junctures, the outcome is determined by how a person positions himself and how each person handles things” (“Fa Teaching at the 2008 New York Conference”). My understanding of our Master’s words is that Master has chosen the people who can be saved. It is dependent on us whether we are going to save them or not. Take, for example, the big earthquake that took so many people’s lives within such a short period of time. It took not only those people’s lives, it also took those people’s futures. Maybe some of them had pre-destined relationships with us. Because we did not clarify the truth to them for many different reasons, they became victims of the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP). What is left are only the regrets we have.

Luckily, this time has not reached its conclusion. We still have a sliver of hope. Please do not let the human notions reflected in our cultivation destroy this hope.

A few days ago, I had a very vivid dream. As I walked from the long-jump sand pit to the athletic field, I heard someone singing. (I do not remember the words of the song. It was probably a truth-clarification song.) The song revealed all the CCP’s lies since July 20, 1999. People were running around like ants on a hot pan. Some people wanted to escape and tried to enter into the classroom building. At that moment, the song said, “No one can escape the clock-tower.” Coupled with the loud sound of an explosion, a big cloth bag appeared in the sky (like an upside down bowl) with four big words on top, “save yourself by withdrawing from the CCP.” After that, the big bag moved up and down like an elevator picking people up. Whenever the bag was down, a few people entered into the bag. (Maybe they were the people who had withdrawn from CCP.) Other people could not even touch the bag even though they tried to. At that time, I realized that the final stage of Fa-rectification has arrived. My ears were filled with the sound of the crying of people who could not get into the bag. I closed my eyes and recited the formula for sending forth righteous thoughts. Then, I felt like I was choking on water. So, I woke up. Everything is still harmonious. The sunshine is bright and beautiful. Several small birds are singing and playing on the tree branches. People are still living veiled in lies. I could not help feeling grateful for our Master’s compassion because we still have time to save sentient beings. Our Master has given me one more chance to save people.

Fellow practitioners, please do not let our human notions destroy sentient beings as well as the fellow practitioners who made the vow with us and came down to help Master to rectify Dafa. Finally, I will finish my article with Master’s words from “Fa Teaching at the 2008 New York Conference,” “Those students who have a lot of human attachments need to remember my words. You may be clear on this now, but don't forget what I said as soon as something happens, and again view things with a human mindset.”

This is my personal understanding. Please kindly point out any mistakes.
